I am excited to share our latest press release announcing that Identity Automation has acquired, HealthCast Inc., a provider of award-winning enterprise single sign-on (eSSO) and virtual desktop technology for the healthcare industry.
Increased regulation and the shift from paper-based to digital records has created new challenges in securing and managing access to personal health data. On the one hand, shared workstations and the need for clinicians to have ready access to patient information and applications, regardless of location, has driven the widespread adoption of eSSO products that deliver streamlined, passwordless access.
However, fear of PHI disclosures, data theft, and the hefty penalties associated with compliance regulations are driving a need for more complete and integrated Identity and Access Management (IAM) technologies that strengthen security, while enabling better patient care at a significantly lower cost.
By combining our RapidIdentity solution’s automated lifecycle management, federated SSO, governance, privileged access management, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) capabilities with HealthCast’s deep healthcare expertise and best-in-class eSSO solution, we can deliver a fully integrated IAM solution that balances ease of use with security.
This gives hospitals, clinics, physician networks, and healthcare providers of all sizes a more complete IAM option—one that goes beyond just eSSO—that helps them address their unique and complex regulatory, identity lifecycle, and integration challenges.
HealthCast adds award-winning healthcare-based technologies, backed by industry-leading support, to Identity Automation’s portfolio, including:
- Robust eSSO solution that was top-ranked by KLAS Research in 2017 and 2018
- Proximity badge functionality that allows users to sign-in on a number of devices, including HP thin clients, Dell Wyse, and Chromebooks, with a simple tap
- Secure, MFA solution for electronic prescriptions for controlled substances (EPCS).
- VDI expertise and connections into Epic, Cerner, MEDITECH, and other clinical business and administrative applications used by healthcare providers.
